-- The population clock for India uses these data:
-- -- According to the 2011 census there were 1,21,01,93,422 people on 2011-03-01 00:00:00 +0530.
-- -- According to the 2011 census the 2001-2011 decadal growth rate was 17.64%.
-- Growth is slowing according to the census, so this is an OVER-estimate.
